Whew! This has been a hard lesson for me to learn, but I am finally getting it!
I have been contacted many times about this, so I thought it may be best to write a public post announcing it. Unfortunately, I am no longer doing portrait work. I am very focused on my goals in photo styling photography as well as my artwork, so I cannot make room in my schedule for portrait work. This includes children, couples, pets, weddings, etc. I never intended to go into portrait photography and discovered early on that it was not the right fit for me.
Due to the number of people I have turned down, it would be unfair for me to make any exceptions, so I hope that you all understand. I wish you the very best as you seek out someone to take these all-important shots. The Triangle is full of incredibly talented portrait photographers that are focused and trained in that area of photography.
Again, I hope that you all understand. I am very flattered that anyone would ever consider asking me to take these photos, so I thank you for your kindness.
